Current Exhibition: COME BACK TO BED
Artist: Madeleine Wood
June 12 – July 25
Opening Reception: June 12th, 7pm with Illustrated Artist Talk.
Fanny Bay artist Madeleine Wood’s exhibition is comprised of two bodies of work: large scale realist paintings of unmade beds and figural works showcasing details of the human form. Beautiful in color and technically excellent in execution these paintings capture the light and shadow that are at play in the meeting of bodies and beds. Both of these series evoke intimate moments. Through the stories suggested by folds and creases of sheets or by the turn of a shoulder or a clenched hand, the viewing audience is allowed into the private space of the bedroom. According to Wood, “these paintings are my efforts to bring my art closer to life, to ask us to consider part of what makes us human, and to consider the beauty in the common place…”.
